Hair transplant in Turkey, the secret to regaining natural hair
Often synonymous with complex, hair loss is a problem that affects men and women of all ages. With the progress of aesthetic medicine, it is quite possible to find a dense hair mass, even for people who experience significant degradation. Carried out in the clinic, the transplant is a miracle solution that offers the prospect of recovering natural hair in just a few months.
Thanks to techniques developed by doctors and scientists, and constantly improved by Turkish specialists, in particular price hair transplant Turkey has become less restrictive and more efficient.
Under local anesthesia, the medical team takes a number of grafts from the scalp, then replanted them in recipient areas, where there is no more hair. Supervised by a practitioner, the hair transplant operation follows a strict process and usually takes 6 to 9 hours. To see the first effects, the patient will have to wait between 6 to 12 months to regain hair density. Indeed, the transplanted hair will resume the same growth rate as an ungrafted hair.
FUT, DHI, and DHI Sapphire, FUE, which device to turn to ?
To fight against hair loss, clinics now offer patients various hair transplant procedures. Techniques called FUT, DHI or FUE which ensure hair regrowth through a process of reimplantation of grafts on the bald parts of the skull. The only difference between these processes is in the method of extraction and insertion.
Follicular unit transplantation, or FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation) involves implanting hair on bald areas of the scalp with a horizontal strip previously taken from the top of the patient’s neck. However, this process can create a scar on the back of the skull.
The DHI (Direct Hair Implantation) technique is performed with an implantation stylet. Meticulously punctured, the grafts are distributed over the donor part, without incising the epidermis. Once extracted, a number of hair follicles are then distributed to the recipient areas using the hair injector. Very precise, it takes into account the orientation of the growth and the depth of the hair.
Halfway between the FUE method and the DHI, the DHI Sapphire is undoubtedly one of the grafting techniques which knows the most important evolution in the year 2021. The hair is first removed one by one on the donor area using a small incision made with a sapphire blade. Then, the follicles are implanted by a pen, as for the DHI, in order to carry out a work of great precision.
As mentioned above, FUE relies on a process of extracting hair follicles from where the hair is most resistant. Once punctured one by one, the grafts are incorporated into the donor parts of the scalp.
